The weather is calling for frigid temperatures, but the New York Yankees hope their offense can remain red-hot in the second series of 2016.

In their opening series against the Houston Astros, the Yankee offense exploded with 27 runs in the first three games, good enough for the most runs in the American League.

Starlin Castro has undoubtedly fueled the offense, thanks to his two home runs and eight RBI in his first three games in New York.

The Yankees sought and achieved vengeance over the team that handed them an early exit from the 2015 postseason, and now the Bombers seek to hand the Tigers their first loss of this season.

Detroit is coming off a two-game series sweep of the Miami Marlins, a series in which their offense was also in hight gear.

The Tigers’ offense was powered by Victor Martinez’s two home runs, and he’ll be looking for some more pitches to drive out of the park.

Two of the league’s best offenses are about to clash in a three-game set and here’s everything you need to know before the first game on Friday.
